“Kneel down before your beds each night and pray a Hail Mary. I did this and it helped me a lot.”
This is the advice of Archbishop of Milan, Cardinal Angelo Scola.
A new book gathers reflections from Pope Benedict on the Virgin Mary to encourage children in devotion to the Blessed Mother.
The 48-page book titled “Mary, The Mother of Jesus,” was published in Italian by La Piccola Casa Editrice and begins with an introduction by the new Archbishop of Milan, Cardinal Angelo Scola.
Pope Benedict speaks of one Byzantine image in particular which “shows the child Jesus with his face cheek-to-cheek with his Mother’s,” Cardinal Scola said.
Cardinal Scola noted that the Pope explains how Mary “teaches us not to be discouraged about things that don’t work out or that affect us, or about our mistakes, if we have the humility to admit them and to ask for forgiveness.”.
His introduction ends with a suggestion to children on how to trust in Mary: “Kneel down before your beds each night and pray a Hail Mary. I did this and it helped me a lot.”
To use the departed soul of Miriam as a medium to reach to God, is not Biblical. Regardless of how many priests, bishops and Cardinals who would tell you to do so.
The Jewish virgin Miriam was a Torah obedient Jewess. It would be a grave sin for her, to take any glory away from God of Israel, her Father in Heaven. That will also be to disobey her Son, the Messiah.
The Bible says that there is only one mediator between God and man, and He is Jesus the Messiah. So even to pray the “Hail Mary” is a grave sin. Only lawless men will encourage you to sin, and claim this to be “holiness”. Eternal condemnation will be their destination.
1 Timothy 2:5
For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus.
Since we have direct access to God through Jesus the Messiah, you make a mockery of Him, when you do not listen to His instructions.
Jewish Miriam was a sinner, a created being. Those who worship created beings, have been lead into an idolatrous life. If such people to not repent, they will all perish. Those you will find in the Kingdom of Heaven, have all lived by faith in Him.
If you still wounder why there are so many homosexual priests in the Roman Catholic Church, you better read these verse from the Jewish Apostle Paul:
Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
Catholics who read this and do not get it, will probably never be able to understand. Their priests have put a curse on their head, and God of the Bible is not willing to lift it. So what can I do?
Their blood shall at least not come on my hands.
